The LLVLC Show (Episode 789): LLVLC Classic – Dr. Ron Rosedale On Low-Carb, Leptin And Lipolysis


NOTICE OF DISCLOSURE: http://cmp.ly/3

In Episode 789 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we have an information-packed interview with low-carb, high-fat diet advocate and physician Dr. Ron Rosedale who is our guest today for this LLVLC Show Classic from our golden archives. Today’s interview is an unforgettable conversation I had with the incomparable Dr. Ron Rosedale, author of The Rosedale Diet. Long before his infamous appearance on my “Safe Starches” Panel at the 2012 Ancestral Health Symposium (AHS12), Dr. Rosedale was speaking with me about about why he wanted to learn more about nutrition, how the low-carb diet concepts really aren’t new, the greater importance of leptin over insulin, why hunger happens, the role of calories on a low-carb diet, why he doesn’t read other diet and nutrition books, the maniacal nature of nutritional studies bending towards pharmaceutical solutions, the movement by the government to make vitamins more difficult to obtain, the cardiovascular risks of taking statin drugs, the diabetes drugs that are giving patients cancer, how he has been on the cutting-edge of moderating protein intake when all other low-carb supporters were talking about high-protein, why he calls for limiting saturated fat consumption in the first few weeks of beginning his plan, why cholesterol is so important inside the body, the correlation between low cholesterol and cancer, his views on limiting omega-6 fat sources to balance fatty acids and why it’s nearly impossible to reach optimal levels in modern society without completely eliminating omega-6 fatty acid sources, why eggs and nuts are nature’s perfect low-carb foods, the impossibility of knowing what the perfect fat/protein/carb ratio is ideal for someone, how what we eat isn’t that same thing as what our cells are consuming, and how to determine the ideal amount of protein to consume in your meals. This is one of my all-time favorite interviews and one worth listening to if you missed it the first time around. It’s an LLVLC Show Classic episode you won’t soon forget!

    If I understood the formula given by Dr. Rosedale, if your ideal weight is 172 lbs. (78 kg), your protein target would be about 10% less than 78, or 70 g/day. Volek and Phinney recommended closer to 1.5-2 g/day or 117-140 g/day based on the ideal weight of 78 kg. Is that formula given by Dr. Rosedale during an induction phase or was this once you are at an ideal weight?

      If you will email me this question to livinlowcarbman@charter.net, then I’m happy to pass along to Dr. Rosedale directly for a response.
